Pastor Frenchye Magee
“Spring Forward” and spring into action this week!
one hour Saturday—and don’t leave home without your snow boots and contribution to Minnesota FoodShare—every pound of food we collect moves us closer to the possibility of seeing your Hennepin pastors together jump in the YMCA pool!
Our new worship series,
Wellsprings of Hope,
begins this week. This series guides us through the season of Lent and reminds us that each one of us has access to places of hope as we journey each day through the circumstances of our lives. God is the sole, infinite source and supply of love and grace, but that doesn’t mean cookie-cutter spirituality! Instead, through our study, prayer, service, and life together, we can discover a web of generous, mutual abundance that can offer us courage and joy, even in challenging moments. This Sunday’s focus: “Well Loved,” asks us to remember the divine love that anchors us and gives us our identity as beloved children of God. From the Gospel of Luke, we’ll explore how that identity grounds Jesus in his spiritual struggle and ask what example we can take from his choices.
For the Children and the Adults in Their Lives:
Lent is a special time in the church. First, we change colors - it's a good time to wear purple! Second, we get ready for Easter - it's only six weeks away! And most of all, we prepare our minds and hearts to be the kind of people we want to be. That's a good thing to speak with adults you trust all throughout Lent: how do we be the kind of people we want to be? May you have wonderful conversations together! And here's a special treat: Chuck Knows Church has a fun video about Lent, take a look together:
